A friend of mine asked me if I would like to do her sons 3rd Birthday party! I was so excited when she asked me, and even more so when I heard the theme "Sharks and Mermaids." So I went with a Under the Sea birthday party theme! The mermaid cake was done by Dippidee's. The sign was made by my dear friend Andrea, who did a beautiful Shark Party that I stole a lot of ideas from, with her permission, of course. Check out her party on her blog "It's the Life" here!
We had a lot of wind that day, which made the sea look very realistic and also very difficult to photograph. We used colorful sea foam green, orange, and blue ballons to decorate the outside of the tent!
Candy skewers with gum balls, gummy sharks, and gummy fish were used for "special favors" for family. Wrapped in cellophane on wood skewers with colorful ribbons tied at the bottom, and placed in bright orange vases and a clear vase with beach sand on the bottom. I also tossed chocolate "treasure" all over the table.
For all the guest they recieved a gift bag with swedish fish and gummy sharks, held by the Birthday Boy himself!
Little mermaid coconut cake made by Dippidee's and mini vanilla cupcakes with sixlet bubbles on top and some mini fondant fish!
